"Excuse me.. Who are you?" -I asked rather rudely to the girl standing at MY front door.
"You're the one knocking at my door." -She replied.
HER door? What the hell was going on. I pushed my way past her and walked into my living room to see my mother on the couch reading a magazine.
"Ehemmm," -I coughed so she'd realize my presence.
She looked up and immediately froze.
"Oh my, Spencer," -she walked over trying to hug me but I rejected.
"Looks like you had a great time replacing me.. Who is this?" -I asked glaring back at the girl who just entered the room.
My mother paused, -"That is.. Brianna, we adopted her about a month ago. You know I've wanted to adopt for a while sweetie."
I laughed, -"yeah but she looks exactly like me!" -I screamed back.
"I'm going to my room,"
I ran up the stairs. Opening the door I was met with the exact layout my room used to be in. Filled with the same stuff. But how is this possible when I left nothing but my journal? My mother actually replaced me.. I walked back down the stairs motioning to Justin who was sitting at the kitchen table,
"Let's go." -I demanded.
"Spencer wait!" was the last thing I heard before slamming my door. Justin and I got back into his car.
"Where to?" -He asked.
We were almost halfway back and it had been silence the whole way.
"I don't think you should have left," -Justin finally spoke up.
"Justin..she basically cloned me." -I stared at him in disbelief.
"Okay but you will have to go back sometime." -I shook my head in disgust.
"Look, were both over 18, who says you have to live there? Why can't we move to Ottawa together? I'll visit your family with you when you want. It could work."
Justin didn't say anything. He just clenched his jaw.
"Spencer, i know what happened to you is crazy, it seems almost impossible but you are thinking about yourself. I don't want to leave Toronto. It's my home." -He said not taking his eyes off the road.
I guess he was right. But how was this supposed to work when we both wanted different things? I hated nothing more than my mother right now. What the hell was she thinking? She ruined everything. Justin and I just started working out and now things would be so hard, I mean I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to leave because I'd have to start over for a second time and there's no knowing what people thought about me there. Plus I had Kyle and I didn't wanna live without him. When did my life become so complicated. We pulled up to my aunts apartment even though she was never there, it was practically mine.
"Goodbye Justin," -I said undoing my seatbelt.
"Wait what?" -He shot back at me.
"You said you wanted to be at home. I have to think about how were gonna deal with this so since you miss home so much go there."
It was the last thing I said before shutting his door and walking away. This wouldn't be the first time I regretted my actions.
